Publisher's Summary

Together for the first time in one volume, two classic holiday stories - plus a bonus novella - from number-one New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr. 'Tis the season for family, friendship, and the thrill of a holiday romance.…

Under the Christmas Tree: With snow falling over the redwood forests, secluded Virgin River is the ideal place to spend the holidays. Each year, the close-knit community gathers in the town square to decorate and light a massive tree. Carols are sung, hot chocolate is shared - and a surprise left under the Christmas tree is about to bring two special people together!

Midnight Confessions: Holiday kisses don't end with Christmas - there's still the New Year's Eve party at Jack's Bar to attend. Locals and newcomers alike find themselves eager for that special countdown…and that midnight kiss.

So join us in Virgin River this year, where Robyn Carr's trademark humor, warmth, and sincerity will have you celebrating the festive season in your favorite mountain town.

Under Tree (Book 7 1/2), Confession (book 10 1/2)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I recommend this series, plus Grace Valley and Thunder Point (all related stories)

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tis the Season?

Under the Cristmas Tree (book 7 1/2) is continued in book 8: Forbidden Falls where you here the store of the pups mother. And in book 11: Promise Canyon, more about the Vet.
Midnight Confessions (book 10 1/2) the story starts with the Foley Family in book 4, A Virgin River Christmas, continues in book 10 Moonlight Road, and ends with the brother's story in Midnight Confessions.

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

The narration was great. Perfect. She brings all the characters to life and makes them feel like real people.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love it when all of the family members are accounted for. Its like all the questions are answered (you know "what happened to so n' so"). that's just a over all good feeling.

Any additional comments?

I hope Robyn Carr adds more books to the "Virgin River" series.

2 short Virgin River stories

I was hoping to get more about the Virgin River families, but this is 2 short stories with new characters. Since these are short stories, there is not a lot of character development. For Virgin River fans, however, it is a fur return to Jack's Bar for Yew Years Eve.

Sweet novellas, perfect performance

Audiobook: Narrator - Therese Plummer
As always an excellent job. I’d listen to her read the phone book!


These were both cute, sweet and fun with just a touch of angst. I definitely liked Under the Christmas Tree more since it felt more rounded and well developed. But both are great listens for the holidays.

Tooo sing songy

I didn’t like this one. The story was okay but the narrator has this up and down way that she lists things that kept distracting me. Sorry. I really like this team but Therese please stop that!

Nice holiday shorts

Under the Christmas Tree - 4 stars
Flirty and funny with the entire Virgin River community taking care of abandoned puppies in Jack’s bar.

Midnight Confessions- 3 stars
Lots of dialogues between the protagonists. Bit boring with all the flashbacks of past relationships.

I always enjoy Robyn Carr's books. These were sweet and heart warming. Too bad they weren't longer.

Great catch up

The story lines introduced new characters that where fun to get to know while catching up with the old ones. This is a great read that I wished had lasted longer.
